Giveaway: Thom Filicia Bedding Collection for QVC

Everything the talented Thom Filicia touches is great.  Did you know that he launched a new bedding collection for QVC last week?

“Woven Dream” is available in grey and navy.  Love the geometric pattern here.

“Floral Vine” comes in chartreuse and a tranquil smokey blue.

I really like the “Full Bloom” pattern.  Very pretty close up, or adding texture from a distance.

Included in the collection are decorative pillow sets and throws….

The folks over at QVC have graciously offered the winner of this giveaway an 8 piece comforter set in the “Floral Vine” pattern.  The winner may request color and size (subject to availability).  

For a chance to win….

1) Make sure you are a follower of my blog via Google Friend Connect and then leave a comment letting me know how you would use your set, should you win.

2) For a second chance to win, follow me on twitter and leave me a comment to let me know.

3) For a third chance, post to Facebook, blog or tweet about it and leave another comment with the link.

I’ll accept all entries through next Saturday the 5th and will announce the winner on the 6th.

Good Luck!

Wallpaper Find…..

I have mentioned before that I have never been a big fan of purple.  But, that has been changing ever so slowly.  This beauty from Brian Yates has helped the cause for purple.

 

Love it!

And you?

Design your own lamp….

Have you heard about the new site, Mottega, that allows you to design your own lamp?  This company was founded by Mark Moussa, founder of Arteriors Home.  I learned about the company from a snippet in the back of In Style magazine, but it was also featured in the February 2011 House Beautiful.  See below….

You select….

And, voilà…..a custom lamp.  Here is one I designed with Harry in mind.

Pretty cool, I think.

Affordable Fabric Find…

Sorry for the quick posts this week….lots going on here and I am trying to keep up! 

Earlier this week, I was in a large fabric store here in Dallas looking for some fabric for some amazing chairs I bought at a sample sale last fall (stay tuned for photos).  While I was there, I quickly perused the isles and found lots of inspiring and extremely affordable fabrics.  This particular one caught my interest….

 

 

This fabric, from Premier Prints, is not only affordable but also comes in a myriad of colors.  Perhaps I was intriqued by this fabric because I have committed to the paper used in the below image for Maddie’s new bedroom.  Do you notice any similarities?

I thought perhaps this may loosly fall into the “look for less” category. 

What do you think?

Guest Posting — 9 Party Essentials


Today I’m over at Party Resources doing a guest post on my “9 Party Items for the New Year.” Thanks to Kate for having me as part of this series.  It was fun to share some of my favorites for entertaining (which is admittedly very casual these days)!  I hope you will check it out.

There is no way around it, this fabric is not cheap.  But, a little would go a long way….don’t you think?

More Traditional Applications of Imperial Trellis

Let’s face it, Kelly Wearstler’s Imperial Trellis fabric for Schumacher is beyond popular.  Check out just about any design blog or online magazine and I’ll bet you can find an image of this fabric applied in one fashion or another.

I recently came accross a couple of images of this fabric used in a bit more traditional of settings than I am used to seeing.

I have to admit, just when I wonder if I am tiring of the pattern, I am reminded of its versatility.

What about you?  Are you a fan?

Pretty in Pink…….

In honor of Valentine’s Day which is just around the corner.  Here is some pink eye candy. 

Seriously, Lulu DK and Dash and Albert, can you go wrong?

 Not sure I’d ever have the guts to do this…..but am impressed that someone else did.
